out, not only built trust between us and the afghans but it gave them the ability to prg on a daily basis. so the other frustration was the coalition effort. there was a lot of people with great intentions willing to help shared by many different countries. the frustration was many different countries, there's many different ways of doing things. so we would be out there telling the afghans, this is how you conduct police operations, this is how we do police training, this is how you hold your weapon and engage the enemy, and then several weeks later another force would come in and not that it was necessarily wrong, but it was different. so from the afghan perspective, incredibly frustrating to understand where they are going and what they need to be doing and what is right and what is wrong. so in closing if someone were to ask me from 2010 to where we're at now, is there hope i would say, yes, there is. as we stand down our combat forces and shift to an advisory and a training role i think we're going to be able to take our lessons lerbed -- learned and ensure that we can con
and this offered us a venue to be able to conduct a humanitarian and disaster relief exercise with all the different partners that we had together and collaborating with this exercise, this offered a perfect opportunity for us to introduce the military capabilities and interaction in exchange with our civil military partners as well. the exercise was located on oh oahu we had used that island as a fictitious island of chianti where we wanted to do a humanitarian response but it also provided us an avenue for the state-wide partners, the civil hawaiian partners, to be able to exercise their exercise as well. this exercise also allowed us the opportunity to intro daus a lot of technology to help with the interoperatability of the civil military exercise. one of the main goals that we had for this was to allow our military a crisis response adaptive force package and opportunity to allow their training and certification in providing the most appropriate military expeditionary force for that scenario. one of the things that we realize in the military when we do these exercises in a foreig

>>> disgust and distrust. okinawans react to a case of alleged sexual assault involving u.s. servicemen and wonder how it will affect the realignment of american forces in japan. people in okinawa have lived with u.s. military bases in their backyard for decades. american forces are supposed to protect them, and the rest of japan in the event of a threat. but many okinawans aren't feeling so safe around u.s. servicemen right now. two navy personnel are accused of raping a woman. the case could further strain japan/u.s. security ties. investigators say the men attacked the women before dawn tuesday on a street in the central part of okinawa's main island. they say the suspected raped and injured her and then made off with some of her personal belongings, including her bag, mobile phone, and some of her clothes. the servicemen arrived in okinawa sunday and were supposed to leave for guam tuesday. okinawa governor hirokazu nakaima met john roos at the american embassy in tokyo. nakaima expressed grave concern the matter could irreparably damage trust between okinawa and the u.s
saving these buildings and the importance of us doo this well and coordinating with the rest of pier 70. what we're doing is rehabilitating the six buildings, the office buildings, the two on the northern side will be used as office and doing different things that the steel company did but used in the same manner and this power house building to commercial use and the south side of 20th street extension of the economy in the area right now and light industrial, arts and recreation and the things that are making that a cool hot new area and we can accommodate that growth. we think this will be jobs for 400 to 500 people. one of the things to recognize this project is important to the port for quite a while. a decade ago we were in contract with other entities to do this and tried to make this project happen. we carry $109 million in the capital plan to do these buildings. we have a project before you today where the orden development group would take the lead and invest their funds and realize this. one of the reasons -- the high level reasons we think this can succeed a
>> welcome back to "newsline" in tokyo. u.s. president barack obama and his republican challenger, mitt romney, have sparred on stage for the second time. they battled over economics in a televised debate three weeks before election day. the debate took place a a university in new york. more than 80 undecided voters asked the questions. obama took a more aggressive approach than the first bank. >> governor romney has a one point plan. make sure that folks at the top play by a different set of rules. that's what has been squeezing middle class families. we have fought back for four years to get out of that mess. >> romney accused obama of failing to live up to his promises. he claimed the president's policies have doubled the fiscal deficit. >> i was someone who ran businesses for 25 years and balanced a budget. i ran the state of massachusetts as a gompbor to the extent any governor does and balanced the budget all four years. we have four consecutive years where he said he would cut the deficit in half. instead he has doubled it. >> romney put in another controlled performance an
as well as on state and cooperating with our federal agencies with the u.s. forest service. so two-fold program, vegetation management, we aggressively pursue that, but also from a public education stand point. what we find in these large scale incidents, the public is going to have to be self-sustaining and self-supporting. they need to be prepared. we try to educate them in respect that we say we'll provide the offense, you provide the defense. we talk to them about hardening their structures in a defensive measure against wild land fires. a lot of it is public education, survivability, building standards, but predominately our focus is putting the onus on the land owner, putting the onus on the private property owner, we will attempt to protect your home but the days of staying and defending your home and killing our fire fighters are done. we will not stand and defend a house that has not been prepared by a land owner and die for it. we don't do that any more. that's one of our doctrinal changes and we set forth some new guidelines with that. >> thank you. >> question, m
and other folks who also could use additional employment. so i think jobs is a big issue for me. >> miss johnson? >> i agree that it's difficult to pick just one issue. but i think a lot of our policy issues that we're having, that you have in front of us come from a lack of accountable. where is your money being spent? how is it being spent? there is a lot of mismanagement. and there is a lot of money that goes places we don't know where it's going. and you can see it running through all of this discussion of all of the polices. are our elected officials making policy decisions that are sustainable? that promote equity? or are they for-sale to the highest bidder? these are the things that we need to address, otherwise you will have the exact same problems of people asking for more and more people and creating a city where there is very wealthy and very poor people. so i would like to give a quick shout out in that direction to supervisor olague, who is having the san francisco housing authority try to film its meetings. it doesn't even meet at city hall and this is the kind of ineq
enough to secure the come pound, but clinton says when it comes to protecting u.s. diplomats oversea, the buck stops with her. >> i know there's been a lot of attention paid to who said what when. but what happened is more important, we were attacked. everybody in the administration has tried to say what we knew at the time with the caveat that we would learn more. and that's what happened. >> three separate investigations are underway to determine who knew what and when. >>> now back out live to san francisco city hall where mourners are remembering fallen ambassador chris stevens tonight. we are there now. >> reporter: a memorial for the ambassador started at 4:30, at san francisco city hall. it was filled an hour before that. that holds 700 people. they opened up one of the courthouse rooms right next door and began a televised feed in that room for the overflow crowd. people continue to come in to listen to the long list of specious that -- list of speakers. the san francisco mayor welcomed the gathering today and said that america has lost a true hero. >> we have lost a true her

's tough to fit it in but it's important to fit it in and it will make us more effective. we did an exercise back in may in preparation for this and developed a pretty detailed concept of operations. we built load plan, timelines, spare parts lists, we really got into the weeds, thinking about the second and third tier effects, so i want my relief to understand that and i want him to know where that plan is so he can pull it right off the shelf if this ever happens and be ready to respond quickly instead of trying to figure this all out when we need to be getting underway. >> i'll boil mine down into just one, and that is i will pass to my relief to continue to support events like this and look for opportunities to continue to learn how we best in the military can integrate with our civilian and federal contemporaries to be prepared for an eventuality that we hope will never come, but we certainly should be prepared for. so the one thing i'm passing on is keep the momentum. >> thank you, all. one other benefit that was cited in the after action review and also was mentioned tod
will allow us to look at is there enumclaw -- for example, 80 -120 axi, ami, which i know we're woefully short on. i'm just curious. >> again, as mr. paul mentions. we're woefully inadequate in 80-120 and are we in need of more analysis? it's something that we would obviously like to work on with you all, because you understand your capacity. i wouldn't dismiss anything that either of you have said. so i don't know if you can address what was raised? >> so this summary report is the main purpose of it is the comparison. >> it rena is the regional housing needs -- our regional goals? >> our regional goals with abag and collaboration with the department of housing, they provide every five years. and anything else that we want to add we can discuss for further information. we can do it in the reports that we're doing that are not mandated, i guess. >> thank you. any concluding remarks, supervisor olague or campos? >> go for it and i will go afterwards. >> just a quick question, the way it works the report happens every quarter then? it's not going to be every six months? it's goin

, this is an area where opportunities like san francisco fleet week will allow us for, and i believe at some point really incorporate this in some internal doctrine that will benefit us in the event that this is a requirement inside the u.s. >> thank you. this morning secretary schultz asked one of the panels that was involved in communications and command and control about in this age of information, real-time information, how you're hit with a sea of information and how do you deal with that. something as senior leaders all of you have dealt with. and i believe admiral zukunft used the term dealing with reality tv. so, until you get that unity of effort and get into an up tempo, how do you as a senior leader deal with that sea of information coming at you that's all over cnn and the cable as you look at deploying your forces? >> i'll take that one again. and i'll go back to my experience during the gulf oil spill. and we lost public trust very early on because we would quote numbers and then the numbers would change and then the more they changed, and if you're the speaking head, you lose public
were for iphones. i actually have a relatively simple solution for this. i would like us to look at -- it would be nice if you could ask apple to disable their phones. they now able to erase your information, but they will not disable your phone or at&t. unfortunately i'm afraid government is going to have to step in and say you must do this or we will sue you. there is lots of police time and energy and worse, there are many, many citizens who are getting really badly hurt for their iphones and their ipads. >> thank you, mr. resignato. >> i'm going to go back to transit issues. i think we need to double down on being a transit-first city, which means improving muni, so it's a viable transit option for everybody. i agree with increasing bike access and even experting with sunday streets, which is closing off a lot of your streets to car traffic. i think it's a great model, but i also think we have to do the simple things like fix the roads and sidewalks. there are a lot of places in district 5 where the sidewalks are in disrepair. i have had several friends who have tripped and
and as a presidential candidate. >> used to getting their own way, determined to get the last word. >> not true, governor romney. >> they got uncomfortably close. >> i have a question, how much did you cut them by? >> i happy to answer the question. >> and odd phrase talking about equal opportunities. >> i said, can you help us find folks? they brought us binders full of women. >> the humor did not last long. mr. romney has said that the president was slow to blame terrorist. >> get the transcript. >> he did, in fact, sir. >> slapped down by the moderator, he found it hard to recover. >> that took them a long time to say this was a terrorist act. hamite incorrect in that regard? on sunday, -- >> he strode over to intimidate his floundering opponent. others were shocked by the brutality of the confrontation. >> the main points weren't hurt because of the aggression. >> i did not think it was going to be aggressive. i did think that obama would step up to the plate. >> it might be off-putting to some, but it put him back in the game and " the fear of supporters that he did not have the fight left
got a tough crowd with us today here. >> we really do. in terms of this market here, what do you want to do in the face of all of this? do you want to put money to work or sit on the sidelines going into year end? >> you can't put money on the sidelines. what are you going to do, buy a treasury bond and get killed? you have to put money to work and put it in those things the government cannot create by fiat. that's hard assets. >> okay. keith, what are you buying here? >> you've got to buy yield here. you can buy some hard assets, but we're in a deflationary environment. we don't see inflation -- >> don't go to the grocery store. >> assets are being destroyed faster than the government can inflate with. you have to buy yield. you can find good yield. there's plenty of places if you don't need all the risk of the market. it's what we do for our clients. we have to remember, we're in a deflationary environment for a couple more years. that's why we're not seeing any inflation. >> look, can i say something? look -- i hate to interrupt. >> you did. >> i know, but that's kind of how i do t
participation from city, civilian agencies from all around the region and all of us our fabulous united states military, the coast guard has been fabulous in providing assets to protect everybody out on the bay. it is one heck of a logistics program to get this whole program started and here we are the culmination of nearly a year of planning. we've had exercises, we've had lots of meetings down in san francisco up at the marines memorial, this is a fabulous program, we had a great medical exchange yesterday. senior leaders seminar third year in a row has gotten a lot of attention. we have a lot of new people who haven't been here for the past couple years, we have a lot of people who have been here for the last 3 years, and one of the major consistent people who has been behind this whole program is the chairman of the san francisco fleet week association, general -- major general mike myers who i'm going to ask to come up and make is remarks. >> thank you, lewis. when i accepted the responsibilities for organizing san francisco's fleet week, the guidance given to me by our honorary co-c

[cheers and applause] so for context i just want to mention a few things and this is no news to all of you here in the room and the people standing up with me today, but today in america more than 10 million people are living in neighborhoods of concentrated poverty and limited investment and opportunities for themselves and their children, and we know that one of the most important factors in determining the economic and financial success of peoples whether or not a child grows up in those high poverty neighborhoods? a. the fact that we can predict health, education outcomes of children based on the zip code, where they live
in an alleged plot to bomb the new york federal reserve building. wnyw reporter dan bowens joins us now with the latest from lower manhattan. dan, what can you tell us? 21-year-old suspect once wrote, quote, that he wanted to destroy america. law enforcement officials tell us he believed the best and most efficient way to do this was target america's economy. that is what investigators tell us. he hatched a plot to blow up the federal reserve bank here in lower manhattan. we're on liberty street. what the suspect did not know, he was closely monitored and watched by the fbi and nypd. as you can see behind me. there are new york police officers standing outside the watching the federal reserve bank in lower manhattan where earlier a man attempted to detonate what he believed to be a department of justice bangladeshi national. he came to the united states in january 2012 for the sole purpose of carrying out a plot on u.s. soil. he is charged with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and attempting to import materials from al qaeda. he assembled what he believed to be a 1,000 pou
frequently on numerous media outlets and has written for quite a few of the major u.s. newspapers in the area or in these areas of his expertise. he is extremely knowledgeable man who has seen things happen and comments on them in, okay, in my humble opinion in a very reasonable and accurate way. he'll be followed by dr. robert freedman who is the peggy mire how far pearlstone professor of political science at baltimore hebrew university and visiting professor of science at johns hopkins university. he has been a consultant to both the u.s. department of state and the central intelligence agency, and he is the author of four books on soviet foreign policy and is also the editor, has been the editor of 14 books on israel and middle eastern policy. and then our third speaker will be dr. stephen blank, he is the strategic study institute's expert on soviet bloc and post-soviet world since 1989. he is the editor of imperial decline: russia's changing position in asia and co-editor of "the soviet military in the future." and he will -- the last speaker is dr. ariel cohen, my colleague here at heri
and his use of performance-enhancing drugs. but today the accusations became quite costly. >> how the allegations pushed armstrong out of the top spot of his live strong foundation, even cost him a major sponsor. the long and controversial ride for lance armstrong has taken a dramatic turn. the champion cyclist and cancer survivor stepping aside as the chairman of the foundation and wildly popular livestrong brand to support cancer services. a statement from armstrong on the organization's website reads in part, to spare the foundation any negative effects as a result of the controversy surrounding my cycling career, i will conclude my chairmanship. nike announced today it will take his name off of its workout facility at corporate headquarters and end the relationship of more than a decade. a company press release says, due to the seemingly insurmountable evidence that lance armstrong participated in doping and mislead nike for more than a decade, it is with great sadness that we have terminated our contract with him. nike does not condone the use of performance-enhancing drugs w
much to all of you for joining us. let me get your take on the housing numbers today, jeffrey. it looks like they were better than expected. still a debate going on in terms of where this recovery stands. >> they definitely were better than expected, but from very low levels. we're up 70, 80% from the lows. but we were well down from the peak in housing. we're not expecting housing to be the steam engine of this recovery. maybe there's a little too much excitement with this particular report. >> john, in terms of putting money to work in this market, do you think what jeffrey is saying, in terms of where we are, is priced into this market? >> when i look at the markets right now and what's going on with the movement in stocks over the last year, it's been on very low volume. in my mind, the one big economic indicator we need to be following is job growth. i don't see job growth that's going to allow us to keep a sustainable movement in the market. >> do you want to sell into equities? >> i guess when i look at it, i'm looking at a longer-term horizon. i think volatility is here to stay

monday afternoon. today is monday, october 1st, 2012. this is the land use and economic development committee of the san francisco board of supervisors. my name is eric mar, i'm the cheraw and to my right is supervisor cohen and to my left is supervisor wiener and miss mil could you please i have us our announcements. >> please make sure is to silence cell phone and electronic devices. documents should be submitted to the clerk? >> i wanted to thank jennifer and greg from sfgov for televising us today. we have four items on our agenda. miss miller could you please call item no. 1. >> item no. 1 is an ordinance amending the planning code permitting five' ground floor height increases for active ground floor uses in the costa street. >> mr. wiener. >> thank you, mr. chairman. this legislation amends the castro neighborhood commercial district and 24th street noe valley ncd. the provisions of the planning code to allow for a 5' height bonus for active ground floor ground uses. we have seen similar legislation recently before this committee, most recently as part of supervisor chu
. that's what we found. the cost was close to 30 billion u.s. dollars. how we organize, well, we have something similar that you have. we have the national emergency office under the internal affair minister and they have offices in the different counties, in the different places in chile this emergency office request aid directly to the joint chief of staff and joint chief of staff to the army, navy or air force and then we move the pieces to put the aid where they need it. the scenario, the beginning when we face this was the same thing we are talking about in this seminar. the necessity was access because everything was, the delivery was absolutely hampered because of the roads so we have to clean it. water, food, electricity and communications. another need at that time to do that is field hospital generators, housing, sat coms, purifying water systems and mobile bridges. so the force was at the beginning just to distribute the aid and at the end start doing law enforcement when the government declared catastrophe and the president gave us the authority to do that. so we move
a treaty of friendship and cooperation. by 1974, as egypt began to move into the u.s. orbit, syria emerged as the no. 1 ally. not to say there are no problems between the two sides. the syrian intervention in lebanon clearly displeased moscow as did its agreement to security council to hundred 42. it's one of the few states that supported the soviet invasion of afghanistan in 1979 and was richly rewarded with military aid as a result. that continued until the advent of gorbachev in 1985 to turn off the tap of military aid. the chill in the relationship continued until 2005 when a combination of increasing syrian isolation due to policies in lebanon and a much more aggressive russian foreign policy under vladimir putin established a close russian- syrian relationship we see today. let's look at the policies of vladimir putin in his second term. i see is reacting to be setbacks like the school fiasco, the orange revolution in the ukraine, and the increasing vulnerability of the u.s. in the middle east because of the invasion of iraq which -- and because of the revival in the taliban in afgha
things don't always go as planned and certainly our experiences in combat has showed us there and prior experience with disasters have outlined that even though there's a well-defined system of response it doesn't always work out. what i defined yesterday was that logistics problems may get in the way and interfere with medical surge planning as is outlined. putting resources where they are needed in a huge disaster may outstrip the ability of local authorities to do that because roads are out. the niche we have as the marine corps assets we have the ability to locate some of our resources like shock trauma platoons, that's what we do in combat and we have experience with that and that may be something that may be of benefit to this process. >> during the last panel, mr. cahen mentioned it's so important to understand the resources that his agency has versus the ones that the military has and he said at one point they started looking down in terms of typing, i have this, you have this, how are we going to respond and get the resources we need to deal with the incident. i'd like to hea
to expect from us. it's been an education process. as we started down the road i think there was an expectation all water and sewer was going to be in operation in san francisco after an ert quake. that probably is not going to happen. it's a little bit different having several blocks in your population out of water versus out of electricity or gas or cell phone service. it's a little bit different level of emergency. after an earthquake what we're designing for is to have the high level fire system more or less immediately. there may be homes, individual service connections, which could be out of water for quite some time and that's where my utility has to interface with other departments to make sure we're getting water to people through humanitarian stations, red cross, mutual aid is a huge part of this with our federal and state partners. but those hand off points after a major event and educating ourselves what we're doing and not doing is a big part of the life line process that naomi is running and it's been very, very helpful. >> thank you. and mr. angelus.
